Ultrasonic Hatch Cover Leak Detector
Sea water ingress is one of the major sources of damage to cargo which often results in expensive insurance claims. Cygnus Instruments designed the ultrasonic hatch leak detector to test for water leaks and weather tightness of cargo hatch covers and doors.
Cygnus Hatch Sure is an ultrasonic leak detector able to perform a quick and effective evaluation of cargo hold hatch covers and door seals to determine water leaks and weather tightness.
The system consists of a battery powered transmitter containing 19 ultrasound emitters (40 kHz). The emitters are arranged to produce an omni-directional sound field, uniformly distributed throughout the cargo hold.
The receiver part of the system displays the sound energy level that passes through gaps in the enclosed cargo hold to enable the location of leaks to be quickly and accurately identified.
